Sylvia Anthony Using Indiegogo Crowdfunding to Make Her Dream of Helping Families in Need Come True
On Thursday , June 11th., 2014, a $300,000.00 USD Crowdfunding site on Indiegogo with a 60 day goal was launched to raise the funds to start the State by State reality of Sylvia's Dream to help more homeless women and their children.
Sylvia has also authored a book about her life called “Till the End of Time” (Xulon Press) and is also being considered for a television series. Sylvia’s story begins with her life as an unwanted child, beaten by her father and ignored by her mother, saved only by the love of God and her grandparents. Next comes her teenage years and first marriage which ended in divorce because of cruelty, but produced three amazing children that she had to raise alone. Later in her second marriage she grew closer to God and was blessed to be able to open up the organization which she leads today.
Life hasn’t been easy throughout the years, but Sylvia firmly believes that God not only gives her courage during times of hardship, but also keeps her healthy so that she may realize a dream of hers which is to open up a shelter, Sylvia’s Haven, in all 50 states!
Sylvia Anthony has been recognized as the National Association of Professional Women’s 2012/2013 Woman of the Year, featured on The 700 Club and received a commendation from President George Bush in 2002. She is the recipient of the Arthur L. Whitaker Award, the National Alliance to End Homelessness Recognition Award, Ambassador for Peace Award, the Governor of Massachusetts Recognition Award, and was named the 2001 Hometown Hero by WBZ-TV in Boston.
